FAQ

We recommend the use of Phimostop from 13 years old. And now let’s explain why.

In most children, physiological adhesion between the glans penis and foreskin is present at birth, which resolves spontaneously during growth.
The narrowing of the foreskin is therefore to be considered normal in the first years of life. It is present in 96% of cases at birth, in 80% of infants at 6 months and in 10% of children at 5 years. Only after this age (5 years) is it correct to speak of congenital phimosis.

<>The glans is uncovered progressively during childhood and must be complete at the end of puberty. At 13, only 2-4% of men still have phimosis.
There is no reason to accelerate this process unless complications arise and attempts to uncover the glans penis should not be attempted because they may cause secondary phimosis.

Paediatric phimosis is of medical interest only when it is secondary or associated with complications:

  • difficult or painful urination
  • Preputial “ballooning” during urination
  • balanitis
  • recurrent urinary tract infections

For these medical reasons, we only recommend the use of Phimostop from 13 years of age.

Phimostop works with all types of phimosis (congenital and acquired).

In the vast majority of cases, phimosis can be permanently eliminated. Even in complex cases of congenital serrata phimosis.
There are rare cases where the expected result is not achieved. This happens if there are transitory accessory pathologies (for example inflammations not yet resolved) or diseases that compromise the entire foreskin (for example a lichen sclerosis). In these cases, before using Phimostop, inflammation must be treated according to the indications of the attending physician.

Phimostop is:

  • the only medical device validated by the Ministry of Health to treat phimosis by avoiding circumcision;
  • a medical device that can be sold in a chemist without a prescription;
  • a European patent;
  • designed and manufactured entirely in Italy;
  • subject of a clinical study at the University of Tor Vergata in Rome (in a few months we hope to be able to disseminate the results – this is where the coordinating professor of research talks about it :http://www.robertomiano.it/fimosi-come-trattarla-senza-intervento-chirurgico/. If you were resident in Lazio you could also ask to join the research and you would receive the product for free during the visit;
  • on the market for more than 9 years.

Every man has his own healing times. With a little patience and following the instructions correctly, healing is possible even with a very tight phimosis. We are always available to give the upmost assistance.

Phimostop is based on the theory of skin dilation if subjected to constant pressure over time. It is a mechanical principle, not a “potion” or something “magical”. The effectiveness of the product depends on how it is used.

The product is applicable for all types of phimosis. Its effectiveness may be reduced in the case of Lichen Sclerosis. Lichen Sclerosus, in fact, makes the skin of the foreskin “dry” and does not allow it to heal completely.

Phimostop’s price is determined by several factors, many of which have already been listed.

  • It is the only medical device validated by the Italian Ministry of Health for the treatment of phimosis.
  • It has a European patent.
  • It is the subject of clinical research at the Policlinico of the University of Tor Vergata in Rome.
  • It won the gold medal at the International Invention Exhibition in Geneva.
  • It is designed and manufactured entirely in ITALY.
  • It has a CE mark.
  • It has a long period of research and constant updating behind it.
  • Itis made through a series of specific industrial moulds.
  • It is composed of highly selected and certified medical silicone.
  • Assistance offered in 5 different languages.
  • Express shipping offered worldwide.

We put ourselves as a serious alternative to the circumcision surgical operation which, if done in public facilities, often involves long waiting lists (even two years), while in private facilities it is an operation that costs the price of Phimostop ‘dozens of times.

Phimostop is a medical device specifically designed for the treatment of phimosis. It has no side effects and does not cause pain. If you have any discomfort it is because perhaps the tube (made of soft medical silicone) has been positioned incorrectly or because you are rushing too fast (we always recommend taking small steps without ever forcing the phimotic ring). In this case, contact us, and we will give you the upmost assistance to use the product well.

If you have a tight phimosis, it is normal for you to have a very sensitive penis glans. The foreskin cannot discover the penis glans and the skin of the penis glans does not come into contact with any external surface. This prevents the skin of the glans from keratinising and therefore the sensitivity is too high.

In this case, a light anaesthetic cream can be used together with Phimostop. As it becomes possible to discover the glans, hypersensitivity will disappear and you can stop using the cream.

The Phimostop tube can be applied preferably to resting penis.
The tube does not cause discomfort in the event of an erection.

In the presence of more or less severe phimosis, the use of condoms in sexual intercourse is suggested to avoid forcing the phimotic ring and making the situation worse. During the use of Phimostop it is possible to remove the tube, and then wear it again after sexual intercourse. Once the treatment is over, once the foreskin is free, you can go back to having sexual intercourse as before the onset of phimosis.

It is not necessary to remove the tube. The tube was designed to allow trouble-free urination. Ensure that the tube is well centred on the glans to avoid a deviation of the flow.

Phimostop was designed exclusively for the treatment of phimosis. In the presence of phimosis and short frenulum, the product can be used to treat phimosis. After the treatment it will be possible to intervene on the short frenulum following the instructions of your doctor.
Phimostop does not cure short frenulum.

The foreskin, even healthy, can be naturally scarce (does not completely cover the glans), normal (covers the glans in a state of rest and begins to discover it in a state of erection), abundant (covers the glans also in a state of erection until is not brought down voluntarily or naturally during a relationship).

Consequently, a normal or abundant foreskin can be traced back to the flaps; a little to half of the tube. The regression effect of phimosis is obtained in both cases as long as the phimotic scar ring is raised around the tube and not left below, out of the dilating action of Phimostop.
It is therefore important to pay attention to also raise the inner wall of the foreskin around the tube and not only the outer one.
